MPlayer Playback Not Smooth

I'm using the mplayer-gtk-esound-0.92.0_2 port with win32-codecs-2.0.90,1 on
a 4.8 FBSD box running Gnome 2.4 to watch a Windows Media stream. The
problem is that about every 5 seconds, the video pauses for about half a
second. The audio does not pause. I do not experience the 'pause' when
watching the stream on a Windows 2K box running Media Player 9.
The stream is 205 kbps video and 32 kbps audio stream encoded on a Windows
box using Windows Media Encoder 9 and version 9 codecs. I have also set the
encoder to use version 8 codec but get the same pauses on FBSD. I do not
recall having the pause on older versions of mplayer.
Does anyone else experience this? Any ideas on how to resolve?
